Very centrally located on a quiet, safe street, Casa de Calderones is a 97 year old adobe home with thick walls and an Old World feel. Lovingly restored with an artistic touch, the rooms are large and comfortable.
Original red painted wood floor in dining room with large dining table. The bedroom is carpeted and has a cozy wood stove. The living room is carpeted and has a gorgeous Persian rug and comfortable leather couches.
Slate tile floor in kitchen with granite countertops and sunny breakfast nook. Victorian bathroom has heated ceramic tile and a long clawfoot tub with shower and is very pleasing to the eyes.
Lovely outdoor patios with dining areas set among the plants and flowers and hummingbirds. The whole property is a delight to the senses.
A recent comment from an enquirer maybe sums it up best:
** 'The past week I have gone over the VRBO listings for Albuquerque and area repeatedly, and there is no doubt in my mind that your house has the best combination of features, location, and value of any other property. All this is supported by the many glowing comments from previous guests and the fact that yours is in such high demand. And I must add that the photos and presentation(staging) of your house is first rate.' **

I did most of the renovation work myself and am very proud of the way it turned out. Green features are important to me, so the house has two solar heating systems and a rain harvesting system. I have enjoyed Albuquerque very much, because it combines the amenities of a fairly large city with an abundance of outdoor activities and wilderness within easy reach.
Albuquerque is the unsung hero of the south west. It is a wonderfully diverse town with great weather and lots to do. From the majestic 11,000 foot Sandia Mountains to the Rio Grande Valley, you will find friendly laid back people and wonderful local food. The North Valley of Albuquerque is the historic part of town and is very centrally located to access many other areas.
I really like the location of my house. To me it is at the heart of Albuquerque, very close to Old Town and the origins of the city. Many important parts of the city are within 15-20 minutes or less, and yet it feels very private and quiet.
Casa de Calderones is in one of the original Albuquerque neighborhoods. It is very close to Old Town with its many attractions, shopping and restaurants. This part of town is very central to a lot of the city and the nearby freeway access makes the city very accessible from here.
